Color Coded Winch Wiring

Never installed an electric winch before? No problem. PROMARK OFFROAD winches (formerly Gorilla Winches) come with color-coded wiring to make installation quick and easy. You don’t need a degree in electrical wiring to install one of our winches.

Just to make it foolproof, we’ve designed each of the wires to be a different color: red, blue, black, or yellow. Each wire attaches to the same color winch post (i.e. yellow wire to yellow winch post).

This is winch wiring for dummies at its best. See the pics below for proof.

    Please help. I hooked up a 4000lb xt series winch on a receiver hitch and there is no power. How do I get power to operate this winch? Where do the red wires off the thumb switch and the remote switch go? When I connect them to the positive side of the 12v marine battery, the only sign of power is a small pop in the contacter switch.

    Thank You
